NASHVILLE-Representative Jeremy Faison of Cocke County has received the "Legislator of the Year" Award from the Tennessee Development District Association (TDDA). The awards were presented on April 4 at the TDDA annual meeting in Nashville.

The TDDA is an association of Tennessee's nine development districts, which are regional planning and economic development organizations. The policy boards within each District are made up of the state's 95 counties and 340 municipalities.  Development districts assist with regional issues including planning and economic development coordination, transportation, solid waste, loans and grants for water and sewer systems, housing, tourism, SBA loans, air quality and services to the elderly.
